Tyson Fury has posted a long message on one of his Twitter accounts claiming a return to the ring, and comparing his return to be like that of Muhammad Ali, when he came back after two years away from the sport to beat George Foreman. Fury also posted a video of himself jogging and calling out WBC champion Deontay Wilder while the Eminem song “Without Me” played in the background.
You can read the note in full at the bottom of the article.
Fury has not fought since his November 2015 victory over Wladimir Klitschko, and would be a welcome addition back to the heavyweight ranks. However, he has to get fit and potentially take some warm up fights, first. Something the video of him jogging is clearly meant to suggest he's started doing.
Since that win, Anthony Joshua has emerged as the big name in British boxing, and now holds three of the four belts Fury won against Klitschko. In his message, Fury says he “will not lay down or be afraid of some muscles.” In his usual confident manner, Tyson called himself, “a true champion coming back to claim his thrown [sic]”
While Joshua Parker hold the WBO belt, he does not seem to interest Fury at the moment, with Fury claiming the 25 year old who beat Tyson's cousin Hughie recently must, “gain experience & mature into a big strong man.” While Tyson has claimed comebacks before, and is known as something of a social media prankster, his issues with the British Boxing Board of Control seem to be closer to being sorted.
Hopefully Tyson will come back, get to his best, and take on the best, certainly not something he's shied away from in the past. As he says himself, “there's only 1 winner & that's the fans!”
